A few days ago, i just changed my twitter bio
"I am frank when i write, when i speak, when i dress myself up"
Frankness. How important is such thing in your life? Have we forgotten such essence? Not only as a person who blog my personal life, but as a human who entangled my own self to the world...
The more i get to know more people the more i am aware of human with its own kind
The kind who will not care, the kind who put their chin up, the kind who only be frank when they're not sober, the kind who are not frank in any way, sober or not...
The more i'm acquainted with these people, the more i want to be frank. To the world, to the clients i work for, to people who happen to read my blog, accidentally or intentionally, to friends i'm having my blast with, and to myself...
I value frankness so much. I adore people who are honest with themselves, in the way they talk and walk, in virtual and reality. Along the way, i met this man who has always been honest with his work and i fell for his creation
He calls himself Maja Teguh Bravijaya, a Jakarta-based photographer who learned everything by witnessing life and it's whole notions and commotions
Just as so many other artists, Teguh loves freedom as well. He once mentioned that he has one magical random life. So literally random that he often finds himself doing and creating things he didn't plan...
Maybe that is just the way an artist should work. Free of pressure, free of burden, only a silent moment with honesty and idealism
It was just a series of his artwork telling a story of himself, or of anyone who can relate to
Frankly speaking, i am really captured by these pictures and the message they're trying to say
If you take a good look of each piece and the title, it will tell you a story of a man, in his lonesomeness and painful life, trapped in a desire and traffic of emptiness is dying to find his peace in destiny. He's not looking for anything else but freedom...
Being very open with his sexual preference has taught Teguh to always be open in every aspect in his life
Maybe that is why Teguh loves to take candid photos, to capture the truest side of people
His dream is to be able to travel abroad and take those honesty of fashion behind the stage of Fashion Week from Paris, Milan to Tokyo. He wants to dive in and blend in with the subcultures while bringing and preserving Indonesia's culture from the point of view of his eyes and his lenses
Until the next malfunction box ! ! !
